One promising avenue towards the development of more selective, better anticancer drugs lies in the targeted delivery of bioactive compounds to the tumor environment by means of binding molecules specific for tumor-associated biomarkers. Eligibility of such markers for therapeutic ideally use three criteria: accessibility from the bloodstream; expression at sufficient level, and no (or much lower) expression in normal tissues. Most current discovery strategies (such as biomarker searching into body fluids) provide no clue as to whether proteins of interest are accessible, in human tissues, to suitable high-affinity ligands, such as systemically delivered monoclonal antibodies. To address this limitation, our group recently developed two methodologies based on chemical proteomic modifications, enabling the discovery of proteins accessible from the bloodstream and the extracellular space in human pathological tissues. In this review, we will discuss the potential benefits of these methodologies for the fast discovery of therapeutically valuable biomarkers. [less ▲]

Tumor metastases, the most fearsome aspect of cancer, are generally resistant to conventional therapies. Angiogenesis is a crucial aspect of tumor growth and metastatic dissemination. Antiangiogenic therapy, therefore, holds potential as an attractive strategy for inhibiting metastasis development. Human 16K PRL (16K hPRL), a potent inhibitor of angiogenesis, has been demonstrated to prevent tumor growth in two xenograft mouse models, but whether it also affects tumor metastasis is unknown. In this study we will investigate the ability of 16K hPRL to prevent the establishment of metastasis. We demonstrate that 16K hPRL administered via adenovirus-mediated gene transfer, inhibits tumor growth by 86% in a subcutaneous (SC) B16-F10 mouse melanoma model. Computer-assisted image analysis shows that 16K hPRL treatment results in a reduction of tumor-vessel length and width, leading to a 57% reduction of average vessel size. In a pre-established tumor model, moreover, 16K hPRL can significantly delay tumor development. Finally, for the first time, we provide evidence that 16K hPRL considerably reduces the establishment of B16-F10 metastasis in an experimental lung metastasis model. Both the number and size of metastases are reduced by 50% in 16K hPRL-treated mice. These results highlight a potential role for 16K hPRL in anticancer therapy for both primary tumors and metastases.

La Wallonie compte une dizaine de producteurs de lait de brebis avec un cheptel variant de 30 à 250 individus par exploitation, pour la plupart de race « Mouton Laitier Belge » (MLB). Il s’agit d’un animal de type exclusivement laitier qui s’apparente fortement au mouton laitier frison dont l’effectif s’élève à un millier de têtes. La présence simultanée de brebis Lacaune (LAC) et de brebis MLB sur une même exploitation a permis la comparaison de leurs performances respectives grâce à une maîtrise du facteur « mode de conduite ». L’effectif restreint des populations étudiées constitue une limite à une extrapolation des résultats à l’ensemble des individus des races concernées mais donne néanmoins une certaine indication de leur potentiel de production respectif en région wallonne.

From a hybrid systems point of view, we provide a modeling framework and a trajectory tracking control design methodology for juggling systems. We present the main ideas and concepts in a one degree-of-freedom juggler, which consists of a ball bouncing on an actuated robot. We design a hybrid control strategy that, with only information of the ball’s state at impacts, controls the ball to track a reference rhythmic pattern with arbitrary precision. We extend this hybrid control strategy to the case of juggling multiple balls with different rhythmic patterns. Simulation results for juggling of one and three balls with a single actuated robot are presented. [less ▲]

Abstract—Motivated by recent observations of fish schools, we study coordinated group motion for individuals with oscillatory speed. Neighbors that have speed oscillations with common frequency, amplitude and average but different phases, move together in alternating spatial patterns, taking turns being towards the front, sides and back of the group. We propose a model and control laws to investigate the connections between these spatial dynamics, communication when sensing is range or direction limited, and convergence of coordinated group motions.

This paper proposes a methodology to stabilize relative equilibria in a model of identical, steered particles moving in three- dimensional Euclidean space. Exploiting the Lie group structure of the resulting dynamical system, the stabilization problem is reduced to a consensus problem on the Lie algebra. The resulting equilibria correspond to parallel, circular and helical formations. We rst derive the stabilizing control laws in the presence of all-to-all communication. Providing each agent with a consensus estimator, we then extend the results to a general setting that allows for unidirectional and time-varying communication topologies. [less ▲]

A method is proposed to characterize contraction of a set through orthogonal projections. For discrete-time multi-agent systems, quantitative estimates of convergence (to a consensus) rate are provided by means of contracting convex sets. Required convexity for the sets that should include the values that the transition maps of agents take is considered in a more general sense than that of Euclidean geometry. [less ▲]

Granule neurons of the dentate gyrus (DG) of the hippocampus undergo continuous renewal throughout life. Among cell cycle regulators, cyclin-dependent kinase 2 (Cdk2) is considered as a major regulator of S-phase entry. We used Cdk2-deficient mice to decipher the requirement of Cdk2 for the generation of new neurons in the adult hippocampus. The quantification of cell cycle markers first revealed that the lack of Cdk2 activity does not influence spontaneous or seizure-induced proliferation of neural progenitor cells (NPC) in the adult DG. Using bromodeoxyuridine incorporation assays, we showed that the number of mature newborn granule neurons generated de novo was similar in both wild-type (WT) and Cdk2-deficient adult mice. Moreover, the apparent lack of cell output reduction in Cdk2(-/-) mice DG did not result from a reduction in apoptosis of newborn granule cells as analyzed by TUNEL assays. Our results therefore suggest that Cdk2 is dispensable for NPC proliferation, differentiation and survival of adult-born DG granule neurons in vivo. These data emphasize that functional redundancies between Cdks also occur in the adult brain at the level of neural progenitor cell cycle regulation during hippocampal neurogenesis. [less ▲]
